Stampin Stars Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampin Stars Blog Hop.  We're celebrating the launch of the Autumn/Winter Catalogue be showcasing some of the new products and hoping to give you lots of ideas and inspiration to get crafting!

If you have just joined me from the Sticky Elf - isn't she fab!  I had the pleasure of working with Nic at the Great British Craft Show recently and I love her style - so clean and stylish.  If you haven't yet had the pleasure, when you have finished here just click on the back button to take you there.

So - to my project.  I was inspired to try this by my new downline Ally Blackman.  As an idea it's been around for a little while but I had never made one before.  It's much easier than you think and it makes for a great little gift or stocking filler.

I love the new stamp set White Christmas and it's just so easy to build a picture.  I wasn't too keen when I heard that Stampin' Up! were introducing photopolymer stamps but  now I'm convinced!  I was able to build my "story" ready to wrap around the can in minutes.  And of course I had to make a matching card and gift tag to complete the set.  Sadly you can't see how sparkly they all are.  My only decision now is what do I hide in the can?

My "story" before it was wrapped around the can!

Can you spot all the new products I've used?  No?  Well I've popped them below - perhaps that will help!

If you are ready to move on click on the forward button and that will take you to the very talented Christine Widdowson.  She always has a slightly different take on things so I am sure you will enjoy her work.  If you have come from Christine's page - then click on the back button to take you to the sticky elf.

Thanks for popping by!
Just in case any of the technology isn't working - I have copied the list of all those taking part at the end of the post so you can always pick up the thread if you get lost!
